We are proud to announce that Blueliv has been included in the list of “Cool Vendors” in the 2015 report titled, “Cool Vendors in Communications Service Provider Security, 2015” by Deborah Kish, Akshay K. Sharma, Craig Lawson at Gartner, Inc.
This is the first year that Gartner has selected Cool Vendors in Communications Service Provider Security category.
The report evaluates interesting, new and innovative vendors, products and services that enable telecom and communication service provider companies to maintain gold standard network protection. It also emphasizes that “As part of the plight of CSPs, there is a growing need for them to provide their subscribers with more secure communications and create new revenue streams; this will be key to their overall market strategies”. Gartner also offers the following recommendations to CSP CIOs and CTOs:
- Consider solutions from the Cool Vendors below when developing business models based on elastic on-demand security functionalities. New service opportunities may result from investments.
- Explore new security data and threat analysis offerings that can protect your own network and can also be leveraged to provide security as a service.
- Look for security services and solutions that provide network intelligence with the aim of protecting your infrastructure from the “outside in.”
“It is a great honor to be designated a Gartner Cool Vendor”, said Daniel Solís, CEO and founder of Blueliv. “Cyber threats have become the most common and serious threats for companies. No organization with an online presence is immune to these very precisely calibrated attacks. The challenge for business today is to ensure that they have information parity with the cyber criminals. What this translates into is that organizations must be armed with timely targeted intelligence that can be integrated seamlessly into their internal security systems.
That ability to integrate large volumes of targeted intelligence can only really be achieved with a targeted cyber threat intelligence platform and that is exactly what the Blueliv solution delivers. It will enable organizations to scale up their technical and strategic responses by using the sophisticated features of the Blueliv platform. Our solution focuses on identifying how the cyber criminals are targeting your business, what attack vectors are being utilized and how the attacks are being delivered. Blueliv offers organizations the complete intelligence picture and thus allows them to take time sensitive decisions to mitigate against the threats Blueliv has identified. Due to the wealth of information we recover, we enable our customers to go a step further and carry-out root cause analysis procedures so they begin to understand how the attack took place thereby and help them prevent the attacks and drive the attackers away. This is how we offer our clients visibility into emerging external threats that are targeting them. This designation is a recognition of our commitment with Cyber Threat Intelligence.”

Organizations with lean forward security programs, managed security service providers (MSSPs) looking to more efficiently consume and process threat intelligence, MSSPs looking for partnering opportunities to take to the market, and CSPs (fixed and mobile) that are interested in protecting their own network from the “outside in” in the face of an always-evolving threat landscape, should consider Blueliv. Blueliv’s solution is competitive, functional and, due to its SaaS delivery model, can give a very fast ROI to an organization implementing or reselling the technology.
